I don't believe the 324 ever offered a 3 groove pulley. The standard car was 1 groove, power steering added a groove and AC added two more grooves since the compressor had two belts. I don't know how you would add a pulley since the pulley is actually part of the harmonic balancer. You will also need the matching water pump pulley. The 4 groove ones are very hard to come by.

324 ac pully for ballancer

actually I have access to a 55 98 with factory ac and it has a 3 groove balancer. I groove for ps, the other 2 for a matched pair of belts that run the generator and ac and they ran like that through 64. One ones tgat I had installed aftermarket ac on they just provided a single pulley that was held on with the main balancer bolt and had a key to grab about 1/8 to 3/16 deep into the existing balancer. I grew uo with these cars and can provide a pic of existing factory ac if it would help ya. Right now I am off frame restoring a 55 Holiday 4dr and have found and bought a working Autronic eye, factory ac, wonderbar radio and now just need a power antenna and power window regulatora for 4 dr hard top. Thank you guys....Dennis

I have a 4 groove harmonic balancer and water pump pulley on my 54. Obviously they did not come on the car. The first two grooves from the front were for the AC compressor and I am only using one on my Sanden compressor. The third groove is for the generator and the last groove is for the power steering. Good luck on your restoration.
